Putting Your Child's Best Interests First
Our legal team understands the emotional and financial hardships you may be experiencing due to child custody and child support. Many individuals have skewed views on child custody based on other peoples' stories.
We have extensive experience handling complex issues and pursue resolutions short of taking cases to court.
The Texas Family Code specifically states that gender is not an issue in the decision of child custody. Fathers typically have the same right to custody as mothers. Texas follows "the best interest of the children" standard for divorce and other family law issues.
Joint Managing Conservatorships
Texas follows the best interest of the children standard when determining conservatorship — the Texas legal term for custody. Typically, both parents are made joint managing conservators to ensure that they can have equal time raising their children.
Joint managing conservatorship also gives both parents authority to make major decisions concerning:
- Medical treatment
The judge will enable one parent to designate where the children live, or a county, such as Brazos County, and its contiguous counties could be designated as the primary residence of the children. That would mean neither parent could move away from those counties without a court order.
We provide comprehensive representation for move-away situations, visitation, and relocations. We strive to resolve issues without needing intervention from the court.
